Verb/Noun-Agreement

Example: Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, in her book "On Death and Dying," outlines the stages of dying, and she illustrates that both the terminally ill person and the person's loved ones experience these stages.

Fast Facts - 1. When the subject of a sentence is composed of two or more nouns or pronouns connected by and, use a plural verb. - When two or more singular nouns or pronouns are connected by or or nor, use a singular verb.

Verb/Noun Agreement

3. The way the verb agrees with the noun depends on whether the verb is regular or irregular. The agreement conventions for regular verbs and agreement conventions for irregular verbs are different.

Verbs do not have to agree with words that come between (interrupt) the noun and the verb. An example of this is, "The highest percentage of voters is in favor;" where the verb, "is," agrees with the noun "percentage," the subject of the sentence, and not with "voters."

There may be more than one noun-verb pair in a sentence; you need to make sure that each pair agrees in number.
